A container loading inspection typically takes place at the shipper’s factory or warehouse. The inspection is carried out to make sure the goods are correctly handled and safely loaded into the shipping containers for safe transportation and delivery to the final destination.
Container loading inspections are beneficial for all importers who want to ensure the safe loading, transportation, and delivery of their goods. It is helpful for first-time importers who want to feel confident in the shipping process or importers who have fragile goods that require more complicated or detailed loading criteria.
A container loading inspection minimizes the possibility of an unpleasant surprise at arrival. It allows you to capture the state of your goods prior to shipping, detect any possible issues, and take action directly. If discrepancies are found, responsible staff are in place to decide on the next step.
